Friday O/T: Would you bet on the Chiefs going 17-0?

 81 replies

Vegas has their odds for the Chiefs having an undefeated regular season, and they’re pretty good considering how rare it is.

That being said, I wouldn’t make that bet, not because I don’t think their good enough to do it, but because Reid is known for resting starters, and I don’t think our backups can go 2-0.

Assuming the Chiefs’ starters go undefeated, they’ll probably clinch the top seed at roughly 15 wins, leaving 2 weeks where history says Reid will play backups. If those backups have a 25% chance of winning (which might be generous), that’s already 1/16 odds of just doing that, requiring the odds of going 15-0 with the starters to be roughly 50/50 for this line to make sense.

But that’s just me, what odds would you give them of going 17-0?

watching Night of the Comet (free on demand).
Mid ’80s to mid ’90s was the swan song for independent production companies (they cut dist deals with the studios).
Used to be 20+ cool movies a year (or 8 moths later for VHS), now, unless you’re into superheros it’s under ten.

Patrick Mahomes complimented WR Cornell Powell’s contested catch ability during Kansas City’s OTAs. Mahomes described Powell, the team’s fifth round pick out of Clemson, as a “beast.” “He’s big out there, running across the field and making some big catches in some tough, contested spots,” Mahomes said. The aged rookie, who enters the NFL at 24, had an excellent final year at Clemson, catching 53 passes for 882 yards and seven touchdowns in 2020. Powell last year had four receptions of at least 50 yards and at least one 20-yard reception in seven of his final eight games. Playing time could be hard to come by for Powell in 2021, though injuries or struggles among the Chiefs’ tertiary wideouts could give the rookie a shot at fantasy relevance in KC’s high-powered offense.

For all of the chatter and anticipation about a potential Julio Jones trade, I can’t help but wonder why we aren’t hearing anything about another veteran player set to make $15 million this season. One on the other side of the ball. One with the same last name.
Oh, there are constant and breathless reports on any Julio Jones-related maneuver — real, imaginary or perceived — but not much at all locally or nationally about Chandler Jones, and what certainly looks like a stalemate between him and the Cardinals. I can’t help but wonder if that doesn’t change in the not-too-distant future, and we all hear a little more about this chasm in Arizona. There are some obvious parallels to both of these Jones situations, and ultimately it stands to reason that both former Pro Bowlers will be playing elsewhere in 2021.

Chandler Jones anyone?

or

Kansas City ChiefsTyrann Mathieu extensionWhile the Chiefs offense that consists of Patrick MahomesTyreek Hill, and Travis Kelce captures most of the headlines, Tyrann Mathieu has grown into the main face of the Kansas City defense during their ascension into an NFL powerhouse. The safety is now heading into the final year of his contract and it’ll be interesting to see how the Chiefs play this. Will Mathieu simply play out the final year of his contract and possibly face free agency or will the two sides come to terms on a deal prior to the season? If I’m Chiefs GM Brett Veach, I try to lock in this key defensive piece.

Believe the TEAM is on mission to make the ultimate statement, which would be UNDEFEATED & win SB. Of course, Health will be key.

IF mitchell schwartz were to re-sign for a vet min ish contract – just think of the Starting O-Line & 2nd string O-line = both LEGIT.

New CBA rule: Starting this season, gameday active rosters, which used to be limited to 46 players per team, can include up to 48 players, provided that at least eight of those 48 are offensive linemen. (If not, the gameday roster size is limited to 47 players.)

I wouldn’t put more than $20 down on an undefeated season, because that’s all I could afford to lose, even at a 33 to 1 payout.

Do I think that on paper they appear to be up to the challenge? Yes, but in theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, however…

You and just about every music reaction channel runner on YT. Me, too, but as I said, when it comes to permissibility of artists my taste doesn’t matter. Go with a video that’s NSFW and I’ll have a problem, but I will never cancel an act simply because I don’t like them.

Objective standards are fine, and we don’t want anything here that couldn’t be seen on a “normal” (aka, non-topless) beach with kids running around. Subjective standards can take a hike.

I doubt they could’ve given him what he wanted, which appears to be being paid like a #1 CB with long-term prospects.

If they couldn’t meet his asking price, don’t blame the FO for “failing to bring him back”. It takes two parties to agree before a contract is inked, and they couldn’t force him to agree. Sometimes it’s the player who makes the call, teams are not and should not be powerful enough to force players to sign contracts they don’t want to sign.

Per Mike Garofolo the deal is worth “up to $4 million.” I’m not in the Twitterverse but here is a link: https://mobile.twitter.com/MikeGarafolo/status/1400935221407723522?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1400935221407723522%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Farrowheadaddict.com%2F2021%2F06%2F04%2Fbashaud-breeland-signs-minnesota-vikings-chiefs%2F

If it’s a one year deal, as implied, the Chiefs could definitely have matched it. Guess they’re happy with what they have at CB. I would have liked to see him back but I’ve stopped worrying about ithe CB situation because they seem to have a way of making it work.

Perhaps it is a tryout contract, with long-term potential. That’s still not within KC’s range, so Breeland was never going to get what he wanted in KC, presuming I’m correct about his goals.

Some people sneered at Brown leaving BAL because he wanted to be a starting LT, and if Breezy has something similar in mind, I won’t sneer at his decision. But the bottom line here is that if KC could swing $4MM, it still doesn’t shift everything to being a KC lapse. Citing numbers leaves the player’s choices completely out of the equation, and I won’t do that, either. These are grown men who make their own decisions for their own reasons.
